The cost of a mango is the beginning of financial wisdom

The cost of this mango is the beginning of financial wisdom

Truly, do not overthink it, instead focus on the added value consuming this mango fruit will give me. This is what I've been telling myself since noon, as I have come to realise, the actual cost of the mango (£4.99), I bought last night, at midnight.

It's not as if I went out specifically to buy mango. I just went to buy this and that. Anyway the packet of crisp and chocolate, did not see daylight. I remember thinking, I would have the mango tomorrow at my leisure. I am glad I didn't see the price last night before I slept. I would have had a rough sleep oo.

Don't focus on the £4.99 a piece, price tag.

At this point I need to research the nutritional benefit of mango generally. Honestly,  I need to know if it is value for money.

Gone are the days when someone will feel like eating mango, and be eating it anyhow. Throwing away half of the mango because "I don't like it getting in-between my teeth", plus i use a knife to cut it. Not now oh, I am even thinking of planting the damn seed, to get the most out of it.

Don't focus on the £4.99 price tag

So far, I've found the nutritional benefit of eating a mango.

I got this information from:

• A mango serving size is equivalent to 3/4 cup of sliced mangos and is just 70 calories, so it’s a satisfyingly sweet treat.

• There are 202 calories in 1 whole mango (without refuse and 336g).

• Each serving of mango is fat free, sodium free and cholesterol free. Mangos contain over 20 different vitamins and minerals, helping to make them a superfood. 3/4 cup of mango provides 50% of your daily vitamin C, 8% of your daily Vitamin A and 8% of your daily vitamin B6. These nutrients in mango may help support your body’s immune system. Learn more.

• One serving (3/4 cup) of mango contains 7% of your daily fiber. It’s a delicious and fun way to get some fiber in your diet.

• 3/4 cup of mango is also a good source of folate, making up 15% of your daily requirement and also of copper, making up 15% of your daily needs.

• There are 19g of carbohydrates in a 3/4 cup serving of mango, making up 7% of your daily value. Give your body a delicious and super fun super fruit

I am still wondering if it is the same mango that people buy in a carton.

The third bullet point has saved the situation. It is my focus, so, although the £4.99 price tag is the beginning of financial wisdom, the nutritional benefit may just be worth it.
